This garden’s owner has created a very personal outlook over the past eight years. She discovered recycling and made many garden items from bits she was given, found or discovered at the tip shop. Thanks to the internet she learnt how to build, fix, repair and create. Today her garden is home to an inspired collection of plants, stands and containers – and there’ll always be room for more!
